The New York Film Critics Circle always likes to be first out of the gate with its awards, and things are no different in 2014. Once again taking to Twitter to slowly reveal each award as they are voted on, the final tallies are in, all the categories are covered, and one of the most talked about movies of the year is on top.
In 2013, it was David O. Russell‘s “American Hustle” walking away with a trifecta of awards, and this year Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood” performs similarly, nabbing top honors for Best Film, Best Director and Best Supporting Actress. In the acting categories, four different films are represented, including James Gray‘s “The Immigrant” which picked up two awards.
But remember, the taste of critics and Academy voters don’t always align, so don’t hold this as an augur for the Oscars too closely. Check out the full list of winners below.
